Instructions: Cut white cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" to create A2 card base. Cut an A2 size card front that has the peach with green border pattern on reverse side, from the Camelia Carnation paper. Cut another A2 card front like the one shown and trim down edges to green border. Diecut the center rectangle from the card front, using the matching Cut Mat Create 1A die. Using from the Eyelet Oval die, diecut the largest and 2nd largest from white cardstock to create an oval frame. Sponge edges of card base, peach panel and oval frame with Rose Coral ink. Sponge edges of 1A rectangle with Pistachio ink. Attach the layers onto card using glue and dimensional adhesive.

Stamp the budding carnation from the HCPC-3808 Fanciful Carnation stamp set in Bamboo Leaves onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating die. Stamp the large, medium and small set of 3 from HCPC-3806 Small Camelia Carnation stamp set in Tangelo ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. You'll need 2 of the large, 3 medium and 3 small petals. Diecut 2 of the small flower bases, using from the HCD1-7165 Large Camelia die.

Use the Stack and Store daubers to sponge the edges of carnation petals lightly with Rose Coral ink. Sponge the stem with Pistachio and New Sprout ink.

Use the Flower Shaping kit to shape the carnation stem. Use the HCFB1-464 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold to shape carnation petals, then also crinkle with fingers to get that ruffled look. For shaping tips, refer to the tutorial above. Stack 3 petals into each other twice, to create a large and medium sized carnation. Create 2 cone shaped flower bases and glue the carnations into them. This gives the carnations an upright shape. Shape the remaining petals into a bud form.

Cut the stem apart as shown. Attach stem and carnations onto the card as pictured. Trim down sentiment, sponge edges with Rose Coral ink and attach to card. Use Dries Clear glue along with Baby's Breath glitter to add a touch of sparkle over the carnations, stem and rest of card as desired.

Instructions: For more detailed instructions on how I have made this box please visit here: https://wp.me/p2MuRN-13Y.

See a larger photo of this project here. To make the bottom of the box cut a piece of Centura Pearl White cardstock 7 1/2" x 9 1/2". Score each side at 2" and then score on the diagonal at the corners of the card. Fold along the score lines using a bone folder. Fold the corner flaps in to create the box and adhere the flaps to the sides of the box with Dries Clear Glue. Cut two strips of the striped patterned paper at 1 1/16" x 5 6/8" for the long side and two strips 1 1/16" x 3 6/8" for the short sides of the box. Adhere them to the sides with Dries Clear glue. Die cut the largest decorative die from the Decorative Scallops die from the Centura Pearl White cardstock and adhere the base of the box to the top of this die. Adhere pearls around the base of the box to cover the join.

To make the top of the box cut a piece of Centura Pearl White cardstock 7 5/8" x 5 5/8". Score each side at 1" and then score on the diagonal at the corners of the card. Fold along the score lines using a bone folder. Fold the corner flaps in to create the box and adhere the flaps to the sides of the box with Dries Clear glue. Cut two strips of pink patterned paper 7/8t" x 5 1/2" for the long sides of the box top and two strips of patterned paper at 7/8t" x 3 1/2" for the short sides. Adhere to the sides with Dries Clear glue. Cut four lace edges from the HCD1-7161 Sweetheart Borders Die set in the Centura Pearl White cardstock. Trim and adhere to the four sides. Cut two strips of the carnations and flowers strip from the patterned paper 1/2" x 5 1/2" for the long sides and 1/2" x 3 1/2" for the short sides and adhere over the edge of the lace trim. Adhere pearls to the sides on the join as shown. Die cut the largest decorative die from the Decorative Scallop die from the Centura Pearl White cardstock and adhere to the top of the box lid with the good side facing up.

Cut the patterned piece from the paper collection that measures 5 8/16 " x 3 8/16" and adhere to the top of the box. Die cut the next size down decorative die from the Decorative Scallop edge die set in the Centure Pearl White cardstock and adhere on the top of the box with foam tape. Cut the small coordinating panel from the patterned paper 2 1/4" x 4 1/4" and adhere to the top with Dries Clear glue. Add pearls around the edge of both scallop borders.

To create the flowers, stamp the images from the Small Carnation stamp set using Stazon Cherry Pink and Black Cherry inks on Art Foam Paper and die cut using the coordinating dies. I have used the three largest sizes here. Sponge the edges of the petals with 3D Stamp Paint - I have used Pink with the Cherry Pink and Carmine Red with the Black Cherry stamped petals. Add Frosting Powder to the petals with Dries Clear Glue using a damp sponge. Heat and shape using your fingers and the tools from the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Assemble the flowers using two larger and one smaller petal and adhere together with a hot glue gun. Take some fluffy white stamens from the Bridal Bouquet - Small set and dark pink Rock Candy stamens and fold in half, poke a hole through the centres of the flowers and pull through the stamens using a small piece of scrap wire. Add glue to the backs and trim the threads. Adhere the flowers to the top of the box with a hot glue gun. Add the red rock candy stamens to a single small flower, poke a hole through the centre of the flower and pull through the stamens using a small piece of scrap wire. Add glue to the back of the flower and trim the ends before adhering to the box as shown.

To make the leaves stamp the leaf images from the Small Carnation stamp set on Art Foam Paper in Forest Green ink. Sponge the leaves with Lime Pastel ink and die cut using the coordinating dies. Sponge the edges with Grass Green stamp paint, heat and shape lightly. Adhere around the flowers as shown with a hot glue gun.

Add Ultrafine Crystal glitter to the flowers and leaves on the patterned paper with Dries Clear glue.

For more tips on creating with the foam paper & stamens, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Oma6ctVmUD0.

Instructions: Start by taking a Kraft flip fold card layout. Measure patterned paper at 1/8" less than the card and distress the edges. There are 2 layers in each of the fold which measure 1/8" less. Stamp some small and large carnation using Plum and leaf archival ink from white foam paper. Shade and color the petal using Crushed Olive and Wilted Violet distress ink. The edges are re-inked once the petals and leaves are shaped.

Die cut a decorative border from white card stock and tuck it in every layer between the card base and the pattern paper. To shape the foam flowers, I used a press which allows the petals to bend automatically and then we can shape it. Layer the petals, pierce the centers and add the stamens.

To arrange the bouquet, use some twigs, pearls and leaves and assemble all the shaped flowers and leaves. Adhere as shown. To finish the card fussy cut tags and sentiments from the paper collection and distress the edges with frosted powder.

For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.

Instructions: I got the idea here but decided to change it up a bit. For my take on this I used one piece of white card stock that measures 12" x 5" scored at the 1/2", 7 1/2", 9 1/2" and 11 1/2" marks and a second piece that measures 5" x 7". Attach the two 5" x 1/2" flaps to the ends of the smaller piece and you will have a 5" x 7" desktop calendar! Once you have the base of the calendar created cover with a piece of paper from the Camelia Carnation Paper Collection layered over another piece of card stock for a punch of color, each layer is cut 1/4" smaller then the previous layer. I added die cuts from the Decorative Medallion and Delicate Border Basics Dies under the layers for a bit of a fancier look!

The fanciful Carnation image was stamped on white card stock using Olympia Green and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Metallic Creme Chalks. The Carnation flowers were stamped on white card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Tea Rose embossing powder and die cut with the matching dies before coloring with Metallic Creme Chalks and shaping with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold and the flower shaping tools.

The sentiment was stamped on white card stock using Lady Bug ink and die cutting with the Eyelet Hearts Die before distressing around the edges with Metallic Creme Chalks. The finishing touch was to lightly spray with Glimmer Mist Gold and enjoy.

Instructions: Red patterned paper is the background. Cut white cardstock to 11x11". Cut black cardstock to 10.75x10.75". Adhere these layers together. Cut a strip of the striped patterned paper, and adhere down the middle of the layout. Using a dinner plate I traced and cut out a circle from green patterned paper.

Cut a scalloped circle from white cardstock, and a slightly larger circle from black cardstock. Use a slightly smaller die to cut out the photo. Adhere the photo to the white scalloped circle. Adhere these to the black circle using 3D foam squares. Adhere to the layout also using 3D foam squares. Add the title using foam letters and sticker word.

Using black ink and the Fanciful Carnation stamps stamp the images onto white cardstock. Die cut them out. Adhere to the layout without shaping using 3D foam squares. 2 down in the bottom right hand corner, and 1 partial image in the top left hand corner. Add pearls evenly spaced all the way around the green patterned circle.

Stamp all of the Small Camelia Carnation floral pieces. For the red and orange carnations I stamped in brown ink, for the light and dark pink carnations I used pink ink. I added color to the pink and orange carnations using inks and daubers: orange (Spiced Marmalade), dark pink (Berrylicious), light pink (Blush). I added color to the red carnation using a Chameleon Pen and Chameleon Color Top (RD4 Crimson Red pen, RD5 Burgundy Color Top) using a 3 to 5 second blend depending on petal size.

Shape the flowers using the 3D Floral Basics Mold, then a little additional tweaking using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Assemble flowers. Adhere a large cluster of flowers in the bottom right hand corner. Adhere 2 smaller flowers to the top left hand corner.

Stamp the Happy Memories sentiment on light green patterned paper using black ink. Cut it out and flag one end. Adhere tucked into the large flower cluster in the bottom right hand corner of the layout.

For more tips on creating with the Camelia Carnation collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/rhk76SAIgWQ.

Instructions: Score your plain white cardstock to 6 x 4.25". Cut the grey piece of patterned paper from the Classic Wedding collection to 5.25 x 4". You will take your scissors and cut the outer edge of the paper in a wave. Once done take your paper tearing tool and tear the edges for a torn look. When you glue it down to the card base you will roll some of the edges up with your finger.

Now diecut two pieces using your Festive Holiday die. Glue each piece to the Classic Wedding paper. Now using your Memento Dye ink in black, stamp two of the Fanciful Carnation stamps. Color using your copic sketch pens then diecut using the coordinating die. Lay each flower down on top of the Festive Holiday die.

Now take the Scrapiniec oval embellishment and lay it on top of the stamped fanciful carnations and finally glue the Prima angel resin piece to finish it off.

To create the flowers take the Camelia carnation flowers and stamp using your memento ink onto the Festive Holly sheet of red paper. Then diecut using the coordinating die set. You will need a total of 10. Once you have your flowers diecut add some shading and color to your flowers using copic sketch: R22, R27, R29 and E44. Once done you will ink only the edges using the Tim Holtz: Walnut Stain ink. Take your dries clear glue and glue along the edge to add frosting powder and then pierce the centers with your piercing tool and add your rock candy stamens in black to your flower centers. Now align your flowers to surround your angel to complete your card.

Wow these projects are so gorgeous. Over the holiday I looked over the stamps and dies that I have collected over the past 20 or more years and have found some of the neatest stamps and dies that were done using the spellbinders blossom die 1 & 2. , I must tell you that it is so much easier having the die with the stamps. So thanks a million for coming up with this idea. It was one of your greatest ones. Your paper is outstanding with all the brilliant colors. I love the idea about the flower tray. Will have to get one of those soon. Thanks again for all your great ideas and samples.

I like what I saw, but how do you mail? Do you make your on envelope or small box?

Hi Janell, What a great question! If you are mailing the card with a package, our shipping department places the cards in a small envelope and places a few packing peanuts in to keep the envelope from crushing the designs and then adds it to the package that is being shipped. For mailing in through the post, we have found these clear boxes to send direct, without any additional packaging needed: tps://www.heartfeltcreations.us/shop/product/search?search=clear+boxes Have a wonderful day!
